15+ Examples of Kids’ Logic That Can Outshine Any Adult

“Children at once accept joy and happiness with quick familiarity, being themselves naturally all happiness and joy,” said Victor Hugo, and we agree with him completely. They have a different view of the world and an innocent way of tackling problems that gives them a distinct advantage over us adults. Otherwise, how would they be able to invent alternative math when they want to cook a pie?

We at Bright Side love to read about how kids see the world, which is why we want to offer you another bunch of cool stories.

“My kid took a bite out of a pie and filled the hole with potatoes to hide the evidence.”

  • My daughter was 7 years old when she got an assignment — to write the moral of The Tale of the Fisherman and the Fish fairytale. She wrote, “The tale teaches us that even if we don’t like what our husbands give us, we should smile anyway.” © KudriGalkina / Pikabu

  • A little more than one month was left until the New Year and my husband decided to start torturing me with the question, “Honey, what present would you like to get for the New Year?” I answered him, frankly, that I don’t know. Hearing this conversation, my daughter who had already sent her letter to Santa, decided to take part in the dialogue:
    — Mom, I know what you want!
    — How can you know what I want if I myself don’t know what I want?
    — I know I know, she continued. You want GOOD REST! © tetcher / Pikabu

  • Today my son, who is in the 3rd grade, says to me in the morning, “I saw science in my dreams at night. Of course, it’s boring but I had to watch what they were showing.” I saw such doom in his sleepy eyes... © Prohorlinna / Pikabu

  • I was sitting in a cafe when a mother with her son came in. The boy was very active, he was about 4 years old. He comes up to me and asks,
    — Are you a girl or an auntie?
    I have met many people who’ve tried to guess my age (usually incorrectly) but I’ve never had a chance to choose it by myself. Thank you, boy! © RybaPumbrija / Pikabu

  • My son is 11 years old. He is growing into a real gentleman. Recently he bought me a treat with the money he earned himself (he walks our neighbor’s dog). He knew I like a salad that I find hard to cook myself and he brought it to me (not ice cream or chocolate). © Arsmoriendy / Pikabu

  • I left a measuring glass for washing powder on the washing machine. My husband started to reprimand me saying that our kid could lick it, it’s safety rules, etc. The kid comes to the bathroom, opens both kid locks on the cabinet with washing detergents, hides the glass, locks both cabinets, and says, “You need to do it this way. Got it?” © unknown author / Bash

  • My kid is growing up to be a good housekeeper. He peed on the floor and wiped the pee by himself... with my clean shirt. © BEMBINI / Bash

  • I went to the zoo with the kids. My kids were growling, squeaking, shouting, and waving their hands. I hope the animals liked it. © KJ / Bash

“My kids had to double a brownie recipe that called for 1/3 cup of oil. Somehow her math yielded out 2 and 2/3 cups. The mix was boiling in the oven.”

  • I was 6 when I read in my mom’s magazine that a woman should wear beautiful underwear for self-confidence even if no one sees them. So I put on panties with cherries on and walked around a-la mysterious girl the whole day. © Overheard / Ideer

  • My son kept telling me the entire morning about the supercar he wants. When he got silent, he lied next to me, and said, “Mom, don’t worry... You’ll buy it for me for sure.” © Quintessence / Kids are speaking

  • About optimists and pessimists. I hear the sound of broken glass coming from the kitchen. My 7-year-old daughter, “Oops, the plate got broken.” My 5-year-old son, “It’s a puzzle!” © Gavrishenko K. / Kids are speaking

Someone’s kid hung up the wet wipes to allow them to dry.

  • A dialogue with my 6.5-year-old son: Mom, cut some bread for my sandwich, please!
    Me: Can you cut anything yourself?
    Son: I can.
    Me: What?
    Son: My fingers. © MegaTanchik / AdMe
